§ 55. Mr. LIVINGSTONE
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he has received a statement from the Lewis District Committee of the County Council of Ross and Cromarty, indicating schemes which they consider necessary to make the Island of Lewis self-supporting; and whether he can make a statement thereon?
The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As the statement was only received yesterday I cannot say more at present than that it will be carefully considered.
§ Mr. LIVINGSTONE
Does the right hon. Gentleman now realise that the Western Isles have a very deficient postal service? A letter takes a week to come.
